  • Reading Intervention and Dyslexia Mission

    In Portland Public Schools, addressing and supporting  reading difficulties and dyslexia is a key district priority. We believe that Literacy is a Civil Right! This site serves as a landing place for all resources that we utilize to ensure all students have their reading needs met, grades K-12. Here you will find content and resources for families and community members, students, and educators. Please see our team contact information or select "more help" if we can support you better in understanding how we are systemically shifting and prioritizing learning to read in PPS.
